Today on Your Call: What Is The People’s History of Afghanistan?



On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tamim Ansary Afghan-American writer and the author of Games Without Rules: The Often Interrupted History of Afghanistan. The book tells the story of Afghanistan since the seeds of the modern country first began to germinate in the mid-1750s.  What is the socio-political history of Afghanistan?  Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. What do we still need to know about Afghanistan? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
